Re: ACL repair. To knife or not.

I work in a vet clinic and remove staples from post-op orto surgery dogs frequently, and it's really not that bad unless a staple gets weirdly embedded.

Re: Red bump in between toes?

Could be the entrance point of a foxtail? If it gets bigger or you notice swelling elsewhere on that leg I would def have a vet check it out!

Re: Distemper

http://www.caninedistemper.org/ All your basic info can be found on that site. Like Parvo, Distemper can't be treated directly, you can only support the pup while his body fights the virus (for example through use of antibiotics and the giving of fluids).
